Hello I was looking to get a side steps for 2012 antara and faced a problem...
JSG are cheap but they look identical to J&J (370992407894 ebay product number) and you get free wind deflectors or boot mat. I wondered are they any good quality, anyone have/had them??

Thanks

I have the JSG ones they seem better than the J&J ones as the JSG attach to 3 points under the car were as the J&J seem to only attach at 2.

Looks amazing, how much did you pay for them?
Seen pic of your antara a while ago and alloys look stunning, also you got the calipers paintedWas gonna do the same as it looks amazing but still want 20 inch alloys on it, so just waiting for tyres to wear out and going to order set of 20's and tyres as a pack (500 pound discount on rimstyle)

I've fitted my jsg's tonight and they look great, bolts kept snapping which was a big problem, but otherwise fine

Just fitted the JSG side steps on my 63 reg , went on with no problemthe instructions state thatyou may have to file and cut the bracket for the models with the electric handbrake but I found that this will only happen if you put them on the wrong side.. <?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" />
By just taking a bit longer to shuffle the brackets around from side to side there is no requirement to cut or file them... A very good fit took about2 hours todo and well worth the effort finishes off the appearance of the carboughtthem more to stop car park dinks,they look to be very solid when fitted properly.


For anyone buying them don't cut or file the rear brackettry them on both sides first, it worked for me...

I don't suppose you can show a pic of the fittings under? I'm thinking of getting some and if it looks simple enough will get them sooner rather than later, im terrible a written instructions, i prefer something visual lol
